Is there a “white” or” black” music? Is the “color” of the music determined by who creates it? Does the “color” of the music depend on the context of the lyrics? These questions were inspired by a YouTube video found on the channel iamOTHER produced by music producer, artist, entrepreneur Pharrell Williams. The video What Color is Your Music? is from the series STEROTYPES, one of the many interesting series on the iamOTHER channel.
There are many genres of music, as there are cultures and identities and often times they cross to create music hybrids. One example of a music hybrid is Reggeaton which has its roots in Latin and Jamaican music. What happens after what was a niche genre of music becomes mainstream music and reaches a global audience? Does the “color” of music apply to who makes it or is it who can appreciate it? What do you think?
What’s the medium of your IDENTITY?
At some point in our lives, whether it was in grade school or via your facebook feed, many of us have been asked to describe ourselves using only the letters of your name. If you have a long uniquely spelled name or one distinctive to your culture, devising a acronym fit to describe the very things that embody your very essence, can be a bit challenging.
Graphic design artist,Petros Varnava conducted a personal survey to discover what people thought of him. This led to an interesting concept of using typography made of his finger prints and his illustrations to share his findings. Instead of using his name, he used letters A to Z.
Identity is something that can be shifted.
However it cannot be changed.

We present to you our Spring issue, IDENTITY.
This issue looks at the materiality of Identity and how it takes shape in Art, Fashion, Style, and even gender. We can hide behind it and create a shield; decorate it, glitter and sparkle it in order to reveal its translucency and invite the world inside; or materialize it, in order to transform the world around us.
